Jackie Robinson would've had an easier time in the MLB if he didn't tell anyone that he was black.

Given the scrutiny he would be under if Michael Sam and he were on the same team, Incognito is probably among the the least likely persons in the NFL to hassle Sam.

FWIW Incognito tweeted this

It's interesting that organizations such as Baltimore and Pittsburgh aren't on that list. I'm not really sure who would hassle him on the Steelers or the Ravens.

I've seen another list that included both the Steelers and Ravens.

He didn't threaten to shit in his mouth because he thinks Michael Sam would enjoy it.

Steelers and Baltimore were both listed as a potential destination in another article


The former general manager said that it would take an NFL franchise with a strong owner, savvy general manager and veteran coach to make it work. He rattled off franchises like Pittsburgh, Green Bay, San Francisco, Baltimore and Indianapolis as destinations where that could happen.

I have no problem with gay people, just not sure what it would do to a testosterone filled locker room?
Because every time a gay man is in the locker room or restroom he cannot help but stare at the naked male bodies and then attempt to initiate sexual contact?

So you have no gripe about gay male athletes other than the part where they are in the locker room with the rest of the team

Which makes a lot of sense. As much as it sucks to say this, he'd have to go to a Northern team. I doubt teams like Dallas, Houston and New Orleans would be quick to jump at it because their fan bases would be... less than accommodating to this kid. It's a shame, too.
